Northeast OH Short Sale Question About Deficiencies

Northeast OH – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Chris. Here was his question.

“I just got an approval from a large national lender this morning and the approval letter stated the following: “Promissory Note of 0.00.” What does a Promissory Note of 0.00 imply?

It shows the promissory note of 0.00 is “to assist in the closing of this
transaction”. My main concern is that if it isn’t prohibited by California law, then I would like them to agree not to pursue a deficiency judgment.

It is best to know 100% in writing for sure so I don’t have that possible issue looming over my head for who knows how long. What are your thoughts on this? Chris.”

Here was our response. I think you’re splitting hairs. Didn’t the “Governator” outlaw deficiencies on short sales? If that is correct, then they can’t get a deficiency judgment.

Do I think they are willing to modify their approval letter for you? This bank worries more about being legally protected than they do about approving one short sale.

You might be able to get the negotiator to state that they will waive this clause. But, it isn’t always possible.

In many cases, the banks can have you sign a contract, but if the law forbids it, then the contract may be legally invalid. Talk to an attorney about whether or not that clause even matters. Thinking about a short sale?
